1. Export - How To

To start an export, open a diagram in Enterprise Architect that contains the element which is to be the root element of your FMEA structure tree.

In the diagram below you can see the system hierarchy. Use the element Sensor Chain as the start element.

Open the context menu on the diagram on the start element and choose Extensions → LieberLieber Connector APIS IQ-Software → Start FMEA-Export

 

Once the model has been analysed the export dialog will be shown.

  1. Set the file export path 
  2. Choose an export language for APIS IQ
  3. Select the elements you want to export
  4. Click Start Export …

It will export the structural elements as an FMEA structure tree, convert functional elements to FMEA functions and embed the selected diagrams as SVG graphics for later use in APIS IQ.

2. Export options

Using the hamburger menu you can select some export options. You will also find some selection tools:

2.1. Selection tools

Menu entryAction
Select all Diagrams of checked System ElementsSelects all diagrams showing one or more of the selected System Elements.
Deselect all Diagrams of checked System ElementsDeselects all diagrams showing one or more of the selected System Elements.
Select all Diagrams of checked FunctionsSelects all diagrams showing explicit function elements. Explicit elements are UML/SysML actions allocated to structural elements using an <<allocate>> connector.
Deselect all Diagrams of checked FunctionsDeselects all diagrams showing explicit function elements. Explicit elements are UML/SysML actions allocated to structural elements using an <<allocate>> connector.
Deselect AllDeselects all elements in the tree.
Select AllSelects all elements in the tree.
Select all functionsSelects all function elements in the tree and implicitly the structural elements containing the functions.
Deselect all functionsDeselects all function elements in the tree.
Select all Functions/System Elements of checked DiagramsSelects all elements/function shown on the currently selected diagrams.

 

2.2. Options

Export Functions as CharacteristicsActivating this option causes functions to not be exported to the FMEA as function elements; rather, that they are exported as Characteristics.
Show diagramsActivating this option causes the diagrams to be shown in the tree.
If the option is switched off, the diagrams are no longer visible in the tree and no diagram information is exported to the FMEA.
